This quote is from author Kathy Juline: "No one exactly like you has ever, or will ever, be born. You are the only expression of Life that has your precise combination of traits, abilities, and gifts. Because you are unique, you are the sole person who knows how you are to live. No one else can know for you."
We experience in life an onslaught of voices. There's the set of voices from the outer that would tell us what we should or shouldn't do with our lives. Note above: No one else can know for you. "No one else" includes parents, children, friends, spouse, siblings, religious leaders, politicians, etc., "NO ONE."
Then there's the voice within, that inner wisdom that truly does know how best for us to live a life of joy. It takes practice to pay attention, hear, and trust this inner wisdom. It also takes courage to listen to and follow this often still small voice, rather than the loud clamor of outer opinions and advice.
Who's steering the ship of your life?
